1.10.1 Configuring an Oracle Linux 5 System to Use the yum Command With ULN

If your Oracle Linux 5 system is registered with ULN, you can use the yum command instead of up2date to download and install packages. If you have installed a full update since Oracle Linux 5.6 was released on January 20, 2010, your system should already be able to use the yum command with ULN.

You enable yum support as follows:

# up2date --install yum-rhn-plugin 

With the plugin installed, you can immediately start to use the yum command instead of the up2date command.
